yep, plenty of those. You could put a catcha in or a simple sum checker with php to make sure the input is by a "human".

What could it be trying to do?

well, bots usually spam to advertise and bring higher traffic for their owner's website. of course, there could be other reasons to do so as well, but this is the usual case. this bot may be just testing your security counter-measures and/or trying to fill up your db with junk...just cuz it can. if this continues, you may want to block the ip or implement some kind of captcha/email validation

I don't want to post the links up on the forum but the even the links don't seem to make any sense. It just looks like randomly typed urls. I don't have the information currently going into a database it's just emailed. on average we get about 50 contact a month through the web form. I should start inserting the info. into a database though so these are easier to track.

This is getting more common. The reason the links don't make sense is because they want to be able to search for them later, to find out whether the comment is auto-approved and the text is indexed. Just put in a text captcha with a question unique to your site (ie, not maths), that should stop this sort of thing.
